    I too live in Germany and had no problems whatsoever importing a sumo, sarb035, skx007 and snhz55 :o
    I'm about to pull the trigger on this one too *sigh*

    First post, just had to after looking at this watch..

    Currently wear an Orient Day-date but looking for something to change things up a bit. Was lusting over the Archimede Outdoor for a while but then stumbled on to the Seiko while looking for cheaper "Explorer-style" watches. Unfortunately I have very thin 6" wrists which makes it very awkward for me. This one looks beautiful with the green dial and gold hands, but I'm still concerned that it might be too big. For reference my current watch is about 43mm lug-to-lug (35mm case width), and apparently the Seiko is slightly larger than that... Any thoughts?

    G. in Greece is finishing off my second order which will go on the Alpinist. The bracelet does not satisfy me as it detracts from the green dial IMO, but the leather 'camel' strap should accent the dial nicely!

    I think you'll be fine. People are usually afraid this one will be too small. My petite wife appropriated mine and wears it well. Just had to punch some extra holes in the strap.

    I was actually worried it was going to be a bit small, but it looks great! And the accuracy is pretty incredible: 6 days +12 seconds. I've been wearing it at night to bed, but may try taking it off to see if it drops down to +1 a day.
